Hi! I'm J. As of recently, I am a proud owner of a New Astro City cab but it needs some work before I can get it working. I had no prior knowledge of arcade stuff before purchasing it and I hope to get some tech support on these forums! :D

Hi there! I'm currently trying to fulfill my life long dream of owning a candy cabinet. I'm currently most bent on importing a vewlix clone from ali baba, though I still have a lot of research to do. This site has been great so far, and I hope I can ask more direct questions to those with much more experience doing this!

hello all, after several several years to want arcade game I finally made the decision :-) egret 2 with wei ya tri frequency and a sega megalo bench. the picture is not as nice as a new net city but as i can have only one arcade game at home with this system I can put everything. I have only 2 pcb: super pang and toki and I hope to find shadow dancer :-)

Greetings from Sweden. Long time player of arcade games but just recently got into original hardware. Have a new Astro City incoming and I'm currently looking for some good games to get started with. Mainly here to browse the buy/sell sections. Cheers!

Hi there,

I'm a long time lurker of the forums from the Killercabs days, and now with a house big enough to host a candy cab or two.
I've been studying Japanese for several years and visited Japan 3 times, and HEY arcade twice! ;) I attend regular Japanese meet up groups in London once a month

I'm a huge CAVE/Capcom fan looking for an Astro/Aero/Blast/Net City to get me started with a MAME set up. Any condition considered!

Cheers,
Mike

Marc here, from New York originally but now living in Canada and more specifically Toronto.

Been to Japan once and generally just a huge video game addic....enthusiast.

I have a almost full MVS/AES collection with a modified HDMI AES that is the absolute bomb. Have tons of games and home console systems. The most rare thing I have outside of my MVS/AES is a numbered 1 of 200 Japanese Resident Evil Blue Dreamcast it is glorious :awe: .

What else, before I get to why I'm here recently? I was able to buy a few animated art cels from Mega man 8 outside of ebay which are being frames and are everything.

Okay so why I'm here!

Living in Canadia is tough, it's not the US and it's not Japan. We don't have tons of Blast City/New Versus City/MVS cabs around and easy to procure. Started getting the wheels turning on getting a pallet of 9-18 cabinets from an international merchant for myself and others in Toronto.

I'm pretty sure I can't fit the cab in the room I want it in (I measured, so close, 2 inches away), but I'm not going to let that stop me, really want to get a cab in the next few years and start a CP and maybe Naomi collection/PC hookup.

New to the hobby from a coin op perspective so pretty computer savvy but not really cabinet savvy so looking forward to being a member vs just lurking and engaging with the community and hopefully getting some people including myself some holy grails they will love and cherish forever.

Hi, I'm mv1f. When I was in college I owned a Neo Candy 29 but I had to get rid of it because moving it is a pain. These days I've been messing with a Naomi without a cab and like to mess with electronics.
